Detroit Lions Select Johnny Culbreath with the 209th Pick in 2011 NFL Draft

The Lions seventh round pick has been announced:

Who: Johnny Culbreath
What: Offensive Tackle
Where: South Carolina State
When: Round 7, Pick 6 (209 overall)
Why: Anyone that read a few mock drafts knows that the Lions were strong candidates to add an offensive tackle in this draft. Nick Fairley proved to be the better value in the first round but they finally pulled the trigger in the seventh round. Assuming Gosder Cherilus will return healthy, the Lions are a couple years from having a tremendous need at tackle but this pick is a solid chance to be proactive rather than reactive.
